The heat is on
Here is our OceanRadio Interview with Kevin Langeree, winner of last year, who cannot wait to defend his title!
They call him the Cape Doctor…
The event takes 2 weeks as the organizers wait for the strongest winds of about 30 knots and more to get the Pro Kiters ready to jump as high and far as possible.
It all started in Hawaii…
The first one startet in hawaii 2000 and was basically about flying kites on the water. 2007/8 it got really hectic when riders like Ruben Lenten started to experiment by heading out in ‘storm force’ winds trying out how high and how far they could go. These previously un-ridden winds resulted in the birth of the ‘mega loop’.
All those Dutchies in South Africa… 😉
Sportive Director for the competition, Sergio Cantagalli explains: “So far 7 out of 24 are Dutch riders, but it’s not surprising since the Netherlands has delivered incredible talents of the discipline in the last few years especially Extreme big air kiters, perhaps linked to the extreme weather condition that their coasts are related to.”
This is , how Kevins prep days look like 😉
